The Montessori method of education is a system of education for toddlers and young children which emphasizes independence and self-learning. Developed by physician Maria Montessori in 1897 through scientific experimentation, the method has been used ever since in many schools around the world.
Montessori views children as naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning when in a sufficiently supportive and well-prepared learning environment. ecoBirdy’s Luisa Table and Charlie Chair feature an ultra-safety and ergonomic design for kids from 18 months to 7 years old, encouraging children to choose at liberty and act freely for optimal development.
Charlie Chair is designed in such a way that it can be lifted by a toddler of 18 months. Its lightweight allows children to carry it around easily. Each corner of the chair, its dimension and angle, is designed so that a child can handle it comfortably. It helps the physical development and motor skills of the early years.
Luisa Table is a 360° safe and multidirectional table that provides young kids with maximum comfort and unlimited possibility for self-exploration. It allows for activities of self-construction and builds functional independence. Together with Charlie Chair, the furniture set creates an ideal environment to interact with and experience.
ecoBirdy’s iconic speckled texture responds to the Montessori belief in sensorial stimuli. Contact with materials gives sensory inputs to help children categorize the information. The pattern and texture on ecoBirdy’s furniture provides a unique tactile connection to recycled material as their early inspiration about circularity.
Different from most wooden furniture, Charlie Chair and Luisa Table are suitable to use outside. Outdoor play helps youngsters to improve their emotional, physical, and intellectual health. Research shows contact with the natural world positively impacts children’s mental, social and cognitive functioning.
We aim to build child-sized furniture – strong, safe and supportive – which both parent and kids feel confident with. Charlie Chair and Luisa Table are designed to be educational, meaningful, and inspiring for toddlers, accompanying them during the most important stages of development.
